Just received a visit from the FBI
7/30/2011 | John Galt - psuedoname

Posted on 07/30/2011 6:17:27 PM PDT by jongaltsr

A couple of hours ago receive a hard knock on the door. I answered the door and about 7 or 8 agents all flashing badges (claiming to be FBI and/or CIA) rushed me and pushed me against the far wall.

My dog attacked and they would have shot him had I not broken free for a second and covered him by laying him on the floor beneath me.

After things calmed down a bit and I received assurances that nothing would happen to him if I placed him in the bedroom and closed the door.

I did so and they then read me my rights and explained that my opinions expressed on Free Republic were the reason they were there. I had expressed my opinion of what I thought of the current President and the majority in congress and was therefore a potential threat to the government. After what seemed to be hours they came to the conclusion (I hope) that I was merely expressing my opinion and not a leader of a counter revolutionary army - as they saw it.

They searched my apartment for weapons and found 4 (which I have not fired in over a year or more) and they seized them for testing. My dog (Ranger) was not happy with the situation so I had to hold on to him during the search to keep him from being shot.

They also seized my computer and downloaded my entire files system. I suppose they also copied any files erased by normal erasure techniques. They returned the computer as "WAS" (as far as I can tell) but I after careful consideration the past few hours I have concluded that they are monitoring me closely.

I'm not even sure this message will make it through but what else can I do but try?

If (Big IF!) this does make it through, beware. They are watching and may make a visit to your residence and give your the same routine.

It really shook me up and I have trouble keeping my nerves steady and my thoughts straight as I write this message.

Once this gets out (IF THIS GETS OUT) I can pretty much expect their return but this time they probably won't be quite as considerate of myself and my dog who they will probably shoot on sight.

I have packed my truck with essentials but I suspect that there are those that are watching so I may not make it to one of my favorite mountain camping sites.

There I will not have any communications except when I get into town and use WIFI to make any contact.

Good luck and keep your heads down.

They have become serious about enforcing their new powers - and some of us might not make it.

I'll probably be #1 on their list.

Semper Fi and God Bless one and all.

The mods assumed hoax and went to the zot. I restored the account and asked the mods to restore the title. Would like an explanation from the poster but he may have already taken a powder.

OK, I can understand that.
Perhaps there was a reason for doing it. His comments are still up.

Maybe I'm naive but I can't imagine such a longtime FReeper suddenly going berserk!

His account had the real banned page when I checked it at the time of my first post and now it is back with a blank home page.

Jim says at 131 he doesn’t know what happened here.

This is getting real strange.

Every once in a while, something happens... like, a guy who's been her for more than a decade suddenly starts raving about being invaded by the FBI (or maybe the CIA) and they almost -- but not quite -- offed his dog, and they tell him that the problem is some keywords he's been using on Free Republic....

And when that something happens, we call it:

Thread Magic.

Anyone actually read his comments? If you do, you won’t be surprised that he got a visit from the FBI. Quite stupid to say some of the things he’s said, actually.

They got to me also. They took me to their headquarters, to this really strange room with lots of red curtains and a strange, zig-zag pattern on the floor. Then this really short guy came out and talked backwards. It was odd, I tell ya.

There was a guy — can’t remember who — who posted the HTML for the “banned or suspended” page on his home page. It was kinda confusing.

Jim explains in 203. And we’ve had FReeper accounts hacked before. MHKing is one that comes to mind. You’re too new to know everything there is to know about FR.

Maybe FR was hacked. Maybe HE hacked FR?

Although after reading his recent posting history, I would not be surprised if someone visited him.

I didn’t read the comments but I went to his FR profile and the top photo of the DC protest had text above that gave me the same feeling.

I meant, I have no idea what happened to this guy in his “real” life. No idea if he was actually visited by the feds or if this thread is a hoax, an opus, was posted by someone else, or what? If he was visited by the feds, I have no idea how they ID’d him. They certainly didn’t get it from me.

We’ve had accounts hacked. We’ve also had FReepers die and not sign off FR. I’ve found two kids of the deceased FReepers that just took over the account. I wish that I could remember what the handles were. They admitted to doing it but it’s been awhile ago.

They finally gave up and just left it that way.

The CIA!? Calling themselves the CIA? You have to be kidding me.

Then look at his posts. Apparently this took place between rather mundane posts of his, THEN he springs this story on us, AND found five minutes between posts to pack his truck for the big getaway.

He's nuts. As Jim said, this may be his Magnum Opus.

I had imagined that the mods got him in limbo first as you have commented. I knew you could figure it all out as far as the post history was concerned.

As I mentioned in another post, like any large group, we have those that have problems with reality being exciting enough.
